Why is my username showing as shibboleth after upgrading EZproxy

  • The username is now showing shibboleth in the log files after upgrading EZproxy.
Applies to
  • Version 6.6.2+ using SAML authentication 

Here is how to resolve the Username from coming over as Shibboleth for all the users:

  1. Open the shibuser.txt file
  2. Update attribute names to be quoted.  See the below examples comparing the Old and New syntax.
Set login:loguser = auth:urn:mace:dir:attribute-def:eduPersonTargetedID        Old
Set login:loguser = auth:"urn:mace:dir:attribute-def:eduPersonTargetedID"      New
Set login:loguser = auth:               Old
Set login:loguser = auth:""             New
